Not sure what to say?

my condolences to Leander and all the Brophy family,
just learned of Effie's passing. She was truly a wonderful person. A pleasure to have had the privilege of knowing. I have a hand written recipe for her fabulous cookies she prepared for hunters, will think of her each time I use it. So sorry for your loss, she was a special lady.

Effie was such a sweet lady. I am so glad I met her. She was a very caring person.

I am so shocked to hear about your Mom. I loved to meet and chat with Effie. She was an exceptional lady who loved to laugh. My deepest sympathy to your whole family. I know she will be truly missed. Keep her memories in your hearts and she will always be with you. God bless you all.

What more can one say than the positive comments already.
Very sorry to hear of Effie's passing so suddenly. She was one of my favourite Aunts.
Our condolances are late, but the memories come flooding back on thinking back to growing up with Effie in my life.
